Exciting launch of Among the Gum Trees!

         This exciting day has finally arrived!

Yay…yay…\o/\o/\o/\o/ I am doing the happy dance!!!

It’s the day for *our* big secret to be revealed and *we* can share with you our fantastic new blog entitled

Among the Gum Trees.

among the gum trees frame 

In a (gum) nut-shell, this is what we’re all about:

A merry band of Australian designers sharing a few of our original and varied designs freely for your personal use.


Among the Gum Trees is the brainchild of Jenny of Elefantz, who has brought together nine established and emerging designers to offer something new and exciting to the world - their own original designs – to download free of charge!


Free of charge?! Are we mad?! Well, no we’re not insane, but we do affectionately refer to each other as “the nutters”, and we look forward to sharing our designs, our news, and our ‘nutty’ journey with you along the way, and among the gum trees!

So when is all of this happening?

Pop over to the Among the Gum Trees blog and have a read of what we are all up to.

It’s sooooo exciting!!!!


Because we are a generous bunch of nuts, we are EACH HAVING A GIVEAWAY to celebrate the launch of Among the Gum Trees blog. And you can enter them all! But because we have become so good at teasing… we will be launching our giveaways tomorrow!!!

So in the meantime please start spreading the word and add our ‘Among the Gum Trees’ button to your blog! (The button at the top)


With a free Christmas design offered to you weekly you will have your handmade Christmas all wrapped up with time to spare!

I look forward to launching my giveaway tomorrow; and if you become a follower of Among the Gum Tree’s and my blog I will give you an extra entry!

Until then… embrace the gumnuts!

Hugs To All………Vicki
